TORONTO, Jan. 7 /CNW/ - The Canada Pavilion will be at the Toronto
International Boat Show from January 11 to 20, 2008.
"We are very pleased that the Canada Pavilion will be visiting the
Toronto International Boat Show this year," said the Honourable Jim Flaherty,
Minister of Finance and Minister Responsible for the Greater Toronto Area.
"The Canada Pavilion provides an opportunity for Canadians to meet face to
face with representatives from the Government of Canada and is also an
excellent way for Canadians to learn more about the Government's priorities,"
said the Honourable Michael M Fortier, Minister of Public Works and Government
Services Canada (PWGSC).
Focusing on the theme Public Safety - Get Prepared, the Canada Pavilion
includes many interactive activities. For example, in the event of a natural
disaster, do you have what you need to be self-sufficient for at least 72
hours? With the aid of videos, demonstrations and interactive displays such as
the Hurricane Hologram, our representatives will explain how to get prepared.
You can also meet our mascot Bravo, who will be around to entertain the young
and young at heart.
Come and discover the federal programs and services available to you by
stopping by the Canada Pavilion at the Toronto International Boat Show.
In 2007-08, the Canada Pavilion is visiting ten Canadian communities from
coast to coast. As the flagship of the Government of Canada's Exhibitions
Program, the Canada Pavilion has won a number of prizes. Since its creation in
2000, the Exhibitions Program has provided information to more than six and
one-half million visitors.
